Mark directed my eyes to a very interesting article about how all those very expensive running (and "comfort") shoes may not be doing much for foot health. As much as I enjoy good shoes (and distrust cheap ones), I decided to give bare feet a try today--OK, slipper-shod--while I walked my dog.
What I noticed; your feet really do "work" a lot more when they're not encased in rubber and cloth, and you "feel" everything in a way that you ordinarily don't.

Who knows? My next pair of "running shoes" could have Chuck Taylor's name on them.
